Conceived as an alternative to the 'bubble cars' popular in the 1950s, Alec Issigonis' revolutionary Mini established the pattern for the modern car with its front-wheel drive and transverse engine. This history of more than a century of evolution includes illustrated features exploring milestones in car design and engine development as well as profiling the great marques and presenting over 1,000 colour images of important cars, from Daimler's first petrol-engined vehicle of 1886 to modern hybrids.

Perfect insight book

Alex - July 2022

What a wonderful book - and I consider myself an egg on auto knowledge, but this book also sits on my self so well as a quick reference with lovely page or two in depth snippets. PERFECT Fathers Day - Auto lover book as a gift.
